If you have a heart condition, please consult the NHS guidelines for the latest advice. See https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/advice-for-people-at-high-risk/ to find out if you are higher risk and what you can do to protect yourself.

Heart Research UK understands that the current Covid-19 situation will impact our medical grants and we will support our grantholders as best we can. We will contact you soon to ask you to provide as much information as possible and keep us informed over the coming weeks about how this is likely to affect your project so that we can assess the likely impact. Please be assured that we are prepared to support requests for no-cost grant extensions to cover any delays caused by the suspension of research caused by the Covid-19 situation. Requests for additional financial assistance to cover costed extensions will be considered on a case-by-case basis as the situation becomes clearer.

Please email Helen Wilson, Head of Research, at helenw@heartresearch.org.uk or call 0113 234 7474 if you have any questions or concerns.

We are continuing to peer-review and shortlist the applications, and plan to contact all applicants in May to let them know whether or not their proposal has been shortlisted.

However, due to the current situation, the Medical Review Panel meeting on Thursday 14th May 2020 has been postponed. We hope to reschedule the meeting for the autumn.

We understand that most research in universities has been halted and therefore we have decided to suspend TRP, Scotland and PhD Studentship grants until 2021. Please keep an eye on the Heart Research UK website for further updates.

Register your interest in applying for one of these grants here and we will contact you when further information becomes available.
